As make-up artists, bloggers, and vloggers gathered at the Metropolitan Pavilion for the coveted beauty event our host and makeup artist, James Vincent took us on a tour of all the new products to have on our radar. “This year is about a focus on artistry. It’s time to take it back!” says Vincent. *Music to my ears*



Aligning with the theme of beauty education and professionalism, The Makeup Show debuted the Icon Gallery, a gallery dedicated to KEVYN AUCOIN. The artist an inspiration changed the industry, transformed faces, and shattered the predisposed ideas of the makeup industry. The beauty world lost Kevyn unexpectedly in 2002, but his art, beauty, and techniques live on through today’s artists and the Icon Gallery.

If you’re in the beauty industry and especially a makeup artist looking to grow your kit, this is a must-do event. Now touring NY, LA, Chicago, Dallas, Orlando, and Europe be sure to visit to learn more.
